    The security staff at Beijing Capital International Airport forced a woman into the ultimate drinking challenge when they refused to let her bring a $200 bottle of Cognac onto a plane.

    Last Friday a woman surnamed Zhao was on her way to Wenzhou when Beijing airport security stopped her for having a 700mL bottle of Rémy Martin XO Excellence in her hand luggage, reports the South China Morning Post.

    According to China security provisions, however, liquids over 100mL are not permitted in carry-on luggage.

    Zhao, 40, decided that a $200 bottle of cognac should not go to waste, so she drank the entire bottle to herself.

    When she attempted to board the plane, however, the captain refused to let her on board because she was traveling alone and he was concerned that her condition would be a safety liability once on board.

    According to a police officer on the scene, Zhao then began rolling on the floor and screaming uncontrollably.

    One of the officers who took Zhao to a convalescence room told the Beijing Times:

    “She was so drunk… she couldn’t even stand up herself. We took her to a room in a wheelchair so she could rest.”

    Zhao woke up several hours after her flight departed, but she was thankful that the airport security took care of her and contacted her family who picked her up from the airport later in the evening.
